COVID-PAH-vaccine

COVID-PAH-vaccine

I had COVID in January 2021. My symptoms were nothing worse than a mild flu. Shortly after that I was diagnosed with PAH. I suspect my PAH resulted from COVID but the doctor disagrees. Now I have antibodies and worry that taking the vaccine will do more harm than good. Any experience or thoughts about this situation? Naturally the cardiologist says get the vaccine but it looks like there is still a lot to learn about COVID and the vaccine. Thanks

I just too a peek at google. I said immunity can last as long as 8 months. That is now, for you. I got the shots as soon as I could. Kansas had nothing for high risk. Just 75 or up, I think. Sore arm..that was it. Your dr said do it. Go for it. My 2 cents.

I was diagnosed with pah in 2019. In 2020 I had Covid. On the insistence of my Pulmonologist I got the vaccine in May 2021 (Phizer)...haven't had any problems.

I heard once you have covid antibodies last a long time in your system, longer than antibodies from the vaccine

Just a note of clarification. I should have mentioned this in the original post: I had a covid antibody test done last week and I still have the antibodies. That's part of my fear. Studies are showing that people with antibodies are 75% less likely to contract the disease than those with just the vaccine. My worry is that the vaccine will screw up my antibodies.

I strongly believe the vaccine caused the exacerbation of my PAH.
